Classifieds on other sites get a lot of traffic.

I wonder why Axiom does not want a classified section in their forums. Emotiva has one and there always seems to be a good flow of Axiom products going in and out of it. I would think it would draw attention to the site even if some of the items being sold were not from Axiom.... Just a thought

That would be a good idea, i've been trying to sell my Axioms for awhile now and no takers. I'm sure they would sell better here on a separate classified section. It would be nice so that why Axiom fans have a chance to pick up some decent priced used speakers and people who just want to move on to something else don't have to settle for Axiom credit.

They really are not in the business of craigslist, try audiogon, ebay, and oh yeah craigslist. Subject has been discussed and the fat lady never sings.

I think that one of the big issues (outside of the fact that they run a business of selling new items, not used) has been that there were some sort of legal liability issues around people selling things here, and if they scam someone, that person could come back against Axiom.

I am sure that there are ways around that, but just not a business that they want to get in to I guess.

I've had my Axiom M2s and VP150 posted on Craigslist for 2 months with no takers and posted in every major city within 2 hours of me and nothing. I've seen Axiom stuff posted on Ebay and Audiogon and it doesn't sell fast, usually the seller has to take a huge hit to sell them. It would be nice to post on here cause they would probably go fast.

i'm sure Axiom could do it by just making a statement at the top of the thread or section to the effect that transactions are the exclusive responsibility of those making the transaction, and not Axiom.

That's what I have seen before on other sites.
